             Bug #: 30226
           Summary: PC-LINK.exe datalogger for DVM1200 multimeter can't
                    select com port to work with
           Product: Wine
           Version: 1.3.28
          Platform: x86
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: blocker
          Priority: P2
         Component: -unknown
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: silvio.caggia at tiscali.it
    Classification: Unclassified

DVM1200 multimeter is sold with a windows software for datalogging on PC
througt a usb port.
software is freely downloable from here:
it works on all windows till windows7
installing instructions and wine results are these:
a. install software (run setup.exe) -> success
b. install USB driver (run USB_DriverInstaller_v110.exe) -> success but I don't
know if you need really to do this step in linux because usb-com ports are
natively accessible...
c. restart Windows on PC -> I restarted Linux... :-)
d. PLUG the USB cable to the PC USB port. -> success (not necessary to do a
e. PC detected the COM (find com port number assigned from Windows Device
Manager) -> I did this: ln -s /dev/usb/ttyUSB0 ~/.wine/dosdevices/comX (with
X=1,2 and 3)
f. run the PC-LINK.exe software. -> success, it opens.
g. set the right COM number in the software (menu > Set > System Set; List item
"Serial Port Select" shows only the default value COM1 and you cannot change
it, the software doesn't see the com ports! -> FAIL TO GO ON!
Other suggestion read on installation manual that I am not able to use in WINE:
1. Login with administrators right in PC system. -> ???
2. If in the vista / window 7, must be disable UAC (User Account Control). ->
3. It might be required to reduce the security level for WINDOW 7 when using
this software -> ???

can anyone help me to use this software?
